Supergirl‘s World Won’t Be Merging With the “Arrowverse”

There won't be an official in-universe Super Legends of Flarrow, as many fans have speculated.


The season of fall television is now upon us, and with the change in seasons comes the return of some of our favorite superhero shows to the CW—including The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and the new kid on the block, Supergirl.

While the network has already hinted at what a team-up will look like as part of their newly-released “Superhero Fight Club 2.0” promo, it turns out that the upcoming four-show crossover will merely involve Supergirl traveling to the dimension of the Arrowverse. Many fans (including yours truly) had speculated that one of the side effects of The Flash‘s season 3 Flashpoint event would be a merging of the two universes, but apparently that’s not the case.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Supergirl EP Andrew Kreisberg said that the crossover will involve Kara “traveling from her dimension to our dimension, ‘our’ being the world that The Flash, Arrow, and Legends lives in.”

That being said, what’s still left unclear is whether the two worlds could merge at any point in the future. Since that wasn’t confirmed or denied, maybe it’s safe to infer that a Super Legends of Flarrow-verse isn’t … completely out of the question?

There’s a lot of other news that Kreisberg touched on in the EW interview that fans can look forward to—like Winn finally going to work at the DEO after helping them to take down Indigo last season (frankly, it was just a matter of time), Lynda Carter’s POTUS enacting an alien amnesty act (which Kreisberg admits is the show’s take on “the immigration debate”) and how the show is going to feel bigger after its move to Vancouver (where all of the other CW DC shows are currently filmed).

Season two of Supergirl premieres tonight on the CW at 8/7c, and I’m Kara-surprised-by-ice-cream levels of excited about it. What are you most looking forward to in season two?
